Supporting Rater Accuracy and Consistency in Classroom Observation

October 20 and 27, 2011

The purpose of this webinar series was to provide an opportunity for states to hear from and ask questions of experts who help to design and implement classroom observation systems that support rater accuracy and consistency. The National Center for Teacher Effectiveness invited six organizations that are currently supporting this type of work in states and districts to describe what they do and what they have learned to help implement these systems at scale.

The organizations shared a variety of approaches, some with similar elements, and some different. Participants were encouraged to think about how these approaches may or may not work in each state's policy climate and ask questions to best inform their policy decisions.
